While the upcoming iPhone 11 seems to be setting itself up as a major let-down, at least we can look forward to whatever comes next with Apple’s premium line of smartphones. Their competitors like Samsung, Realme, and even Lenovo of all people, have announced their next line of phones supporting 5G, there has since been no word on Apple’s plans. Until now.
Thanks to the internet’s most trusted Apple analyst and leaker, Ming-Chi Kuo has now confirmed that a 5G-enable iPhone will definitely come in 2020. To quote Kuo himself: ”... the new iPhone lines will include the high-end 6.7-inch and 5.4-inch OLED iPhone models and the low-end 6.1-inch OLED iPhone. The 6.7-inch and 5.4-inch OLED iPhone models will likely support 5G.”
What’s interesting is the new sizes these new iPhones will take, with the 6.1-inch seem to be the iPhone XR’s successor, while the 6.7-inch is comparable to the current iPhone XS. The 5.4-inch seems to indicate that a smaller phone, like the iPhone SE, is making a comeback. Besides the leap into 5G, Kuo also confirms the new iPhones to feature OLED screens, a major improvement over the retina displays of the current iPhones. The OLED screens might just be similar to those found on the Samsung S10 and Huawei Mate P30.
These are all mere speculation for now, though Kuo’s track record usually rings true. We’ll keep you posted as the full integration of 5G draws near to everyone in the world, and as soon as every smartphone developer keeps up with this new development.
